Global business expansion consultancy Tricor Group has appointed Richard Beattie as its CEO for Australia. Beattie, who formerly worked for Big Four accounting and advisory firm PwC, will report to global Tricor CEO Lennard Yong in his new role.

Beattie has been part of Tricor Group since 2003, when he left his role as Tax Specialist at PwC.

Some of Tricor’s specific services include business, corporate and investor consulting, human resource management & payroll services, as well as corporate trust & debt services.

In Australia, Tricor supports international companies establishing in the country with accounting, payroll, company secretarial and tax compliance services. The Sydney-based firm also offers services including immigration advice, transactions support and business advisory.

Australia is emerging as one of the strongest economies in the APAC region, and a number of large businesses are looking to establish a base in the country. Within Australia, business leaders are currently riding a wave of positive sentiment, with a willingness to invest in growth. Against this backdrop, Beattie aims at expanding Tricor’s footprint in the country.

Commenting on his appointment, Tricor Group CEO Lennard Young said, “I am pleased to announce Beattie’s promotion. Having been with Tricor for nearly twenty years, Richard has demonstrated his professionalism in client servicing, capability in revenue generation and loyalty to the company.”

“I am confident he will continue to enhance our services to clients and unlock the potential of businesses in Australia. At the same time, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to former managing director Tony Dormer for his significant contribution and commitment to Tricor Australia,” he added.

Dormer served Tricor Australia for over four decades, working with some 500 businesses during this period.
